I used my Buttermilk Banana Bread recipe and made a few small tweaks to come up with these muffins.  They are so moist and full of pumpkin flavor.

This recipe makes a lot (24 muffins), but they keep really well in a sealed container.  And, trust me.  They will not last long. 🙂

    So moist and full of pumpkin flavor! The best recipe I have ever tried for pumpkin muffins and my children love them!

    Yes!! Soooo good! I didn’t have brown sugar or regular sugar so I used raw sugar 1 1/2 cups. I made the texas xl muffins 350* for 45 minutes. Made 6 and froze the rest. Not sure if the batter is freezable but we will see. Great recipe! Will definitely make this again.
